Tina Williams first with 300 at both USBC Open and Women’s Championships

LAS VEGAS – Tina Williams of Pflugerville, Texas, has created a new entry in the record books for both the United States Bowling Congress Open and Women’s Championships after her performance Tuesday at the South Point Bowling Plaza.

She is the first competitor to record a perfect game at each national tournament after starting her doubles set at the 2024 USBC Open Championships with 300 on the way to a 750 series (300-227-223).

Williams had her perfect game at the Women’s Championships during doubles at the 2021 event in Reno, Nevada. She finished that trip her highest all-events total through 19 trips to the tournament (2,195) and posted four finishes in the top 15, including a fifth-place effort in Diamond All-Events.

The 43-year-old right-hander followed suit with her performance this week at the Open Championships, recording her top all-events score through 16 appearances with 2,048. She added 718 in singles and 580 in team.

The former Team USA member and three-time National Collegiate Bowling Coaches Association All-American at West Texas A&M also made the appearance one to remember by joining her husband – two-time Professional Bowlers Association Tour champion Stu Williams – with a 300 this year at the Open Championships.

Stu rolled his 300 on May 10 during his second game of singles for an 805 series (currently third in Regular Singles). The performance helped him into second place in Regular All-Events with 2,245, and he’s currently fourth in Regular Doubles with David Bartlett of Bloomington, Illinois (1,476).

Watch the video below as Williams compares her experiences going for 300 at each event and opens up about what it means to achieve this milestone.

Williams is the 13th woman to bowl a 300 game at the USBC Open Championships. She joined Crystal Elliott of Palm Bay, Florida, with a perfect performance at the 2024 event. Elliott connected for her 300 during singles July 7.

The 2024 Open Championships got underway Feb. 23 and will run through July 29 at the South Point Bowling Plaza. The tournament is scheduled to feature more than 11,000 teams and 55,000 bowlers making their way to compete in Las Vegas.
